The Founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T.B Joshua has been appointed as the Ambassador of Tourism in Israel by the Israeli government.
The award is coming after the Prophet held a two-day event in June, 2019, at the Amphitheatre of Mount Precipice, in the historic hometown of Jesus Christ.
Although the event, was fiercely criticised by local religious figures and nearly faced cancellation due to the intensity of attacks, it attracted thousands of religious tourists from across the globe.
Hundreds of people had protested against the event, they had marched through the city in Northern Israel with placards condemning the coming event and shouting; âLet this witch get away from us!â
A group of religious figures also visited the venue of Mount Precipice afÂter the event and carried out a âcleansing ritualâ with waÂter, leaves and salt.
The event, which was broadcasted on local teleÂvision throughout Israel and featured in The New York Times and Reuters, attracted the attention of Israelâs MinÂistry of Tourism.
This prompted the Israeli government to give the Nigerian clergyman an award, as they made him a âTourism Goodwill Ambassadorâ.
